Use of Cookies or Web Beacons On Of America Networks, Inc. Sites
Many Of America Networks, Inc. web sites use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you or your computer, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize an Of America Networks, Inc. web page, or set a preference in a Of America Networks, Inc. web site or service, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.  When you return to the same Of America Networks, Inc. web site, the information you previously set can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. However, if you choose to decline cookies, you will not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the sites or services you visit.

Of America Networks, Inc. web pages may also contain electronic images known as “web beacons” - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that allow Of America Networks, Inc. to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about web site usage. Some Of America Networks, Inc. sites may also contain web beacons placed there by our advertising partners, to help us determine the effectiveness of our Internet advertising campaigns.

Security of Your Personal Information
All of the Of America Networks, Inc. web sites have taken reasonable security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.  Please remember that no computer system should be considered safe from intrusion. E-mail may pass through many computer systems, and should not be considered as a secure means of communication unless encrypted.  Even then, information is only as secure as the encryption method. Employees are made aware of security policies and changes via email reminders monthly.  Access is limited to a very small number of employees with a defined need and is password protected.  In order to provide the best possible security we review our web security policies every 90 days.
